governor romney is going to win ohio this year. host: both of them have been there numerous times to the president just 15 times this year, 30 times since he has taken office. tell me about ohio. caller: ohio is a class a purple state, well balanced between democrats and republicans, a microcosm of the country in the sense that you have blue caller workers, you have -- however, the state is older, probably more caucasian, a little white r. it has really been hit by the economic downturn, especially heavy industry. both sides think they have a real shot at winning the state. i think in the early going, the obama campaign scored well on their class warfare argument. that is one of the staples of the obama campaign, "you are not doing well because this guy in his career is doing too well." now i think the public is beginning to understand that it is the bad economic policies of this administration that is causing everybody to do less well than they should. so i think now mitt romney and paul ryan are starting to pick up. host: what kind of ground game do you need to pick up ohio? gue
inside "the war room," i'm jennifer grandholm. both president obama and governor romney are pulling out all of the stops to win colorado's nine electoral votes. the latest poll from american research group has romney leading 50% to 46%. last month the same survey had obama leading. so here is david sirota who is author of "back to our future," and cohost of a radio show. and he really knows what people are saying and things. welcome back inside "the war room." >> thanks for having me. >> jennifer: president obama was doing great until the debate in denver. what did you folks do to our president? >> i think this race was always fluid out here in colorado. there is a huge number of latino voters in this state, and mitt romney is doing terribly among latino voters. i think this will be definitely a turnout election. it is going to be a 2008 turnout or '2010 turnout, and what does that actually look like, and it's really anybody's guess right now. and i would say this, one thing that i think democrats can be -- can feel good about is that senator michael bennett was
romney manages to disc both pbs and nickelodeon in the same week. i don't know why he hates children so much. maybe it is because so many will grow up to be women, minorities and poor people, his mortal enemies. and a texas school district is forcing students to wear radio tracking chips and civil libertarians are crying foul. but don't they cry foul when adults are implanted with chips too? you can't make them happy. and come on down. the price is right -- "the price is right" names its first ever male spokes model. i don't know where this leads us as a culture, but i'm sure on a slippery slope. andy? >> see you at the half. let's welcome our guests. i am here with remi spencer. and it is gavin mcguiness, writing fore "talking ma g.com" and street carnage.com." and bill schulz who thinks he is on "glee" and it is dennis neil. >> a block, the lede, that's the first story. >> so does he not like our nation's tykes? apparently mitt romney hates children. he promised to kill big bird with his own bear hands, i believe. and obama's campaign hasn't forgotten. >> i am barack obama and i appro
. and this in colorado, a swing state, where both romney and obama have been courting the large hispanic vote. that wouldn't have happened if my guest on this week's broadcast had been moderating the debate, but their participation was rejected by the tiny group of insiders who set the rules. that's a shame because george ram mows and maria elena sorena are two of the most popular journalists. they work for the most important spanish language network in the country, univision. i met them for the first time earlier this week when they were in town to receive the emmy award for lifetime achievement from the national academy of television arts and sciences. here's part of the video presentation that introduced them to the emmy audience. >> they're two of the most well-recognized journalists in the united states. pioneers and advocates. for more than two decades maria and george have informed million of hispanics through the popular evening newscast. their brand of journalism is characterized not only by subjective and perspectives, but also by a high degree of social advocacy. in the last three
actresses who say vote mitt romney? >> i think maybe there's some bit of both. i have no idea. as you know, there are a lot of people on twitter, some people there do not say the nicest things to people, tuparticularl people in the public eye. that happens a lot. can i get into the mind of people who do that sort of thing, i absolutely cannot. is it general, do people think that more of hollywood is liberal than conservative? i think that people generally think that's true. >> rick, what do you make of this? it seems a particularly poisonous reaction. she seems a perfectly nice young lady to me. she's perfectly entitled for who the hell she likes. you guys are the beneficiary here of her vote. i'm sure mitt romney is very happy about that. but it came in a week when there was an 18 point swing back to mitt romney amongst women. hardly surprising that a woman, despite the fact she's a black actress, has decided that she prefers mitt romney now. lots of women are making that decision. so why the fury? >> i think there are lots of blacks supporting romney. there are lots of gays supporting r
are in battleground states and as you know, that's where it matters. both in terms of the public polling, but also in terms of what we've built on the ground. remember, we have several different pathways to get to 270. mitt romney doesn't. so we feel pretty good about where we are in this race. there's been some tightening as a result of mitt romney's debate performance but we think that that is temporary and can be turned around. >> in ohio, for example, president obama's leading by seven to ten points before the debate. that is now shortened to just 4%, 51-47. it's getting tight, isn't it? president obama cannot afford to have -- >> that's just one poll. >> sorry? >> right. that's in the cnn poll. but there are a lot of other polls out there. we feel good about where we are on the ground, particularly in ohio. as a result of what the president did on the auto bailout, let's remember, mitt romney opposed that. what we've done to increase opportunities for kids to get education, let's remember mitt romney wants to cut that. so at every turn, you know, the president is moving america forward, inclu
" and former romney foreign policy spokesman, rick grinell. welcome to you both. let's start with this stacey dash thing. there is a very nice, attractive, talented young black actress who decides because she has come to this conclusion i i'm -- i voted for obama before, i'm voting for romney now and all hell breaks loose. she's the subject of a vicious attack on twitter by all sorts of people. what do you make of it? >> listen, i think it's unfortunate that anybody can make up their mind and vote however they want. i think also, you do have to realize that there are people who kind of gravitate to vote in groups and they kind of think in groups. i think we sometimes just look at the racial group but there are people who vote in gender lines, they look at whether or not there's a war on women and whether or not you should be a woman voting for the gop, for instance. a lot of people make that argument. there's sexual orientation, there's kind of ethnic -- >> right. but in this particular case -- >> all i'm saying is should she have been attacked, of course not. do i believe that people kind of

and i approved this message. [ female announcer ] he says... president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families.

to become a doctor. >> right now let's get to decision 2012. both presidential candidates doing serious battle in a key battleground state. today mitt romney continues his week long visit there to ohio. no rp,-c won the white house without carrying the buckeye state. earlier president obama wrapped up his 17th rally there. that's the most of any other state. with all the new polls out showing a much tighter race, both candidates definitely know, it's on. and they have to trade serious shots. this one in particular over the tax plan. it's true it's not going to have the deficit. that leaves one option. that's asking middle class families to foot the bill. >> the president's charge of a $5 trillion tax cut is inaccurate and wrong. meanwhile, the vice presidential debate is scheduled for tomorrow. >>> 2,000 jobs are up for graps today in the south gay. 50 employers were there this event is free and ones until 1:00 this afternoon. good morning. it was an idea that was first announced last mont if you ever wonder what goes on at twitter, you can this friday. you have to register first. you s
debate will go better with romney because republicans will probably own both houses of congress and the presidency if romney wins. to me that's -- over the next three months or so, that's the most important issue. >> what if mr. romney does not win? >> if mr. romney doesn't win, effectively you have status quo. we think the fiscal cliff debate goes much worse. first you don't get the romney bounce, you probably get a bit of a sell-off on that. the bigger issue is the end of this year, i think it is going to be the summer of last year around the debt ceiling debate. i think it is going to be real lreally ugly. >> what areas of the market do you like with the longer term view past the election? >> right. if you look out beyond just the election and fiscal cliff issues, i think the key is, if we're in a slower economic environment, 1.5%, 2%, 2.5%, you need companies that underline earnings growth. you'll find that in a variety of areas, you'll find it in good staples company and fine technology companies. but being able to identify that to me is more important than simply buying di
is a wrenching personal one for most americans. it deals with issues that are fundamental and profound. both in terms of personal feelings and public policy. but we now have a candidate for the highest office in the land. mitt romney, for whom the whole question of abortion seems negotiable. it's just another bargaining chip, a moveable position that changes whenever is politically convenient. here's the latest from an interview from an iowa newspaper. >> do you intend to pursue any legislation specifically regarding abortion? >> there's no legislation with regard to abortion that i'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda. >> a new romney promise. no new abortion laws. is mitt to reassure women that he's really not going after their rights? the national review was told, quote, governor romney would, of course, support legislation aimed at providing greater protections for life. this is the second time this year the campaign corrected their candidate on abortion. back in august, romney said abortion should be legal in several situations, including when the health of the mother is
. >> what does paul ryan need to do to keep the momentum going that mitt romney accelerated last week? >> both these candidates are really smart guys that know washington, know how buckets work. -- budgets work. that's what paul ryan's specialty is. he has to show his expertise. this is a great opportunity for him to introduce himself to the american people again and to show take he's somebody that we can credibly believe is one heart beat away frbing president -- from being president. >> we don't vote for vice president. we do vote for them but you know what i'm saying. that's not why you go to the polls and elect the top of the ticket. does the debate really mean that much in the long run? >> typically these debates are memorable for gaffes and faults. >> joe biden has provided us many. >> but he's a great debater. he was fantastic four years ago and walk add fine line against a candidate that was considered to be a lightweight. so he had to show that he was one, a heavy which he was but not crush her. he did both of those things. he backed up the president's positions. it was a lit
